July 29, 1936 - April 27, 2022
Inez Collins Scott, 85, passed away peacefully in her sleep on Wednesday, April 27th in her home on Mill Creek in Lyles, TN. Ms. Inez Scott was born in Olar, S.C. in 1936 and was the daughter of Ogreta Black Collins and the late James Roy Collins. She was a retired editor of The Baptist Sunday Board in Nashville. She was a life-long and proud Southern Baptist, but in recent years claimed membership with the Hope Church congregation in Centerville, TN. Survivors: two sons, Robert Scott (wife Heidi) of Naperville, IL & Jeff Scott (wife Wendy) of Dickson, TN, one daughter, Susan Dale (Scott) Hudgins (husband David) of Lyles, TN; three grandchildren, Trey Hudgins (wife Katy), Meagan Hudgins and Callie Scott; one great-grandchild, Henry David Hudgins. She was preceded in death by her son, Anthony Roy Scott; brother, Everette Collins; sisters, Rose Ella Collins Black and Margaret Blume; her mother, Ogreta B. Collins, and father, James Roy Collins both of Bamberg, SC. Inez explored her many talents, which included painting, needlework, crochet, woodworking, costume design, and dress-making (mostly for Susan's years of twirling competitions). Inspired by her costume design imagination and crochet skills, Ms. Inez created hundreds of patterns for Barbie dresses, which developed a loyal fanbase. Besides church, Inez enjoyed spending time at the Senior Citizen's Center and the time spent Saturday mornings at the Grinder's Switch Radio Hour, which she still listened to from home during her time of illness. But there is one thing Inez did not miss - her basketball games! To say Inez loved people is clearly an understatement. She was always seen with a smile on her face and a positive word of encouragement to those around her, she will be missed by all those who had the pleasure of knowing her. Memorials may be made to the Hope Church Building Fund. There will be a Celebration of Life Service held at Hope Church on May 28th at 11:00 am - Visitation at 10:00 am.
